My plan (if you could call it that) is to set up a decent Folding Farm ala JRabb1920 composed primarily of gear purchased here.
The gear goes through a cycle of WOW that's new to me to ....hunh that's all she's got to.....well it'll make a good Folding Rig.
It's a natural cycle from frolic to cholic to bollocks....then out to pasture with the rest of them...
However that has it's downside because of the scattered remnants of data hither and yon on the network here at Little Mountain. So I am currently collating and sifting down to a master copy of all the many many duplicates of files on my various rigs. Once I have them pretty much fully backed up I plan to decomission many of my beloved rigs and strip them into skeletonized Folding Rigs...preferably sans HDDs at all...in my shed...it's an idea I have been hoping to implement about now actually--and I just need to do the same sort of sifting and decompling of all my household junk that currently occupies what should make a nice Folding Shed.
So when people tell me to get a Conroe (which I already have BTW) it's not about latest greatest...it's about experiencing all these different rigs...the stuff I buy here was just a short while ago great stuff...but after 6 months to a year ot is serioously underpowered (LOL). For what I do 99% of the time stuff 5 years old would work...heh. Not that I am a junk collector. I simply want to see how all these rigs perform firsthand--I have a great curiousity about each and everyone of them.
